Day 93

Men

I logged on to the dating site I’ve used in the past. I typically log on every couple of years to peruse and rapidly remember why I’m still single... what’s out there in my area is not inspiring. But this time there were two men who intrigued me so I dropped the bucks for a one-month subscription and sent the likes. Now I wait. I’m not optimistic.

My profile is straightforward, I included my education. I thought about leaving it out because men tend to be intimidated by it but I figure if a guy can’t deal with it it’s better to know from the start.

I’m sure my friends would tell me to put myself out there more and send messages and all that. But the thing is, I’m sick of being the “alpha” in my relationships. I want a man with balls bigger than mine for a change. I want a man who takes the lead and has some initiative.

Maybe I’m short-changing myself but I don’t want to go through the pain of getting attached to another man who can’t hack it.

I know I’m a lot to handle but that’s who I am.

Thoughts?

    I don't know, Miranda: I spend a lot of time on a popular dating app, and the returns do not match the effort. Lots of "one off" exchanges, lots of "great, but I'm busy....." I actually had a pretty good date last night, but who knows where that may go.....

    I really doubt it will get me anywhere. I’ve done short subscriptions to this app several times over the years. The first time I met three men (the coward being one of them) and the other times none. The men I’m interested in aren’t interested in me and the men who contact me make me cringe.

    Yep, been there, done that. I've never subscribed, so I'm not out any $$$. However, if you see it as a long term project (say, a year or so....) then you may get lucky....

    Oh good lord I couldn’t deal with it for a year. I mostly get ignored and paying for rejection just isn’t my idea of a good time.
